The 2017 version of the International Code Council’s (ICC) consensus product that sets the standard of care for sport and recreation spectator structures is the current version.   The safety of these facilities are an obvious fixture in athletic and recreation facilities.  We follow its development and the development of related consensus products in the same space — notably by that National Fire Protection Association (NFPA 102),  the American Society of Civil Engineers Structural Engineering Institute (ASCE SEI-7) and regulations promulgated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The free public access to it is linked below:

ICC 300 Standard on Bleachers, Folding and Telescopic Seating, and Grandstands

The development of this standard is coordinated with the ICC Group A Codes.  We have tracked concepts in it previous revisions; available in the link below.   We find it a relatively stable standard at the moment but keep it on the agenda of our monthly Athletic & Recreation standards teleconference.  See our CALENDAR for the next online meeting, open to everyone.

As always, we encourage our colleagues with workpoint experience to participate directly in the ICC Code Development process.  CLICK HERE to get started.
